Scaling Patents (Class 345/660)
  • Patent number: 11069066
    Abstract: Techniques described herein address the issue of inadequate view of areas of a crop rectangle for a user while cropping an image. The inadequate view may be due to the user zooming, panning, or rotating the image such that some or all of the crop rectangle may no longer be within view in the graphical user interface. The solution of zoom-loupes provide a view of the corners and user selected points on the edge of the crop rectangle that may be magnified to assist the user to set the crop rectangle area precisely. Additionally, a second crop rectangle can be generated when the entire first/original crop rectangle is unavailable because it is outside the view in the graphical user interface. Using the second crop rectangle, the user may use the second crop rectangle to complete pixel perfect cropping.

  • Patent number: 11068147
    Abstract: In one embodiment of the present invention, a collaboration engine is configured to display shared digital assets consistently across displays. The collaboration engine receives container metadata generated based on a first location and first size of a digital asset within a first scaled workspace displayed on a first display. In response, the collaboration engine computes a second location and second size of the digital asset based on the container metadata and the size of a second scaled workspace. Finally, the collaboration engine configures the second device to display the digital asset within the second scaled workspace based on the second location and the second size. Notably, the container metadata correlates to the appearance of the digital asset on the first display, and the appearance of the digital asset on the second display correlates to the container metadata. Consequently, the appearance of the digital asset is consistent across the displays.

  • Patent number: 11062130
    Abstract: A digital image of a check may be divided into segments. The segments may be processed to determine the edges between the background data and the check data in the segments of the digital image. A histogram of each segment may be determined and used to determine the edges of the check image portions in the segments and thus the edges of the check. The data outside the edges of the check image portions in the segments may be considered to be background data and may be identified and/or removed. The segments, with the background data removed, may be recombined into an image of the check and provided into a digital image file that may be transmitted to an institution system for deposit of the check in an account.

  • Patent number: 11061561
    Abstract: Small virtual screen text editing is improved by a dynamic keyboard with far fewer, but far larger keys, each key representing a predictive partial word completion. The normally static keyboard becomes a keyboard menu, augmenting traditional word completion menus. A reduced key set displays only the most relevant keys, while retaining familiar structural patterns of standard layouts like QWERTY. Condensed layouts can include circular or alternating row menus and alphabetical formats. The apparatus continuously adjusts the number of keys, key sizes/shapes, predictive values and variable layouts to provide the most ergonomic, minimalist keyboard possible at any moment. Keys display normal default values concatenated with supplemental predictive characters; each key represents the longest common building block of likely intended, predicted words derivable from the key's normal default value.

  • Patent number: 11030814
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the system captures a video data stream of a scene and contextual data streams associated with the video data stream. The contextual data streams comprise a sensor data stream or a computed data stream. The system renders an artificial reality effect based on the contextual data streams for display with the video data stream. The system generates a serialized data stream by serializing data chunks of the video data stream and the contextual data streams. The system stores the serialized data stream into a storage. The system extracts the video data stream and one or more of the contextual data streams from the serialized data stream by deserializing the data chunks in the serialized data stream. The system renders the same or another artificial reality effect for display with the extracted video data stream based on the extracted contextual data streams.

  • Patent number: 10802618
    Abstract: A cursor control method and an electronic apparatus are provided. A touch operation is received through a touch panel, and a designated region on the touch panel is set based on an initial position of the touch operation. During the execution of the touch operation, a current position of the touch operation on the touch panel is detected, and whether the current position is within the designated region is determined. If the current position is within the designated region, a cursor is moved at a first speed. If the current position is not within the designated region, a cursor is moved at a second speed.

  • Patent number: 10754514
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods that search videos and other media content to identify items, objects, faces, or other entities within the media content. Detectors identify objects within media content by, for instance, detecting a predetermined set of visual features corresponding to the objects. Detectors configured to identify an object can be trained using a machine learned model (e.g., a convolutional neural network) as applied to a set of example media content items that include the object. The systems provide user interfaces that allow users to review search results, pinpoint relevant portions of media content items where the identified objects are determined to be present, review detector performance and retrain detectors, providing search result feedback, and/or reviewing video monitoring results and analytics.

  • Patent number: 10719914
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for digital content zooming. In one example case, the hypotenuse of the digital content (or a combination of both height and width values of the content) is initially set to provide the 100% zoom level and is subsequently used to resize or zoom that content. In particular, an arbitrary constant that is independent of the content itself is used to define the initial or 100% zoom level at which the content is initially displayed. The arbitrary constant may be, for example, a hypotenuse size in pixels, or a specific combination of height and width in pixels. In one specific example, the arbitrary constant can be selected based on, for instance, an average of current physical screen and/or virtual viewing window resolutions' hypotenuse sizes, in pixels. In any case, the arbitrary constant can be used to set the initial size of the content, and to compute zoom steps.
